mid tarsus

I thought the mid tarsus looked dark, so couldn't decide between trivittatus and female hybridus, and I can't get the brightness and length from close-up photos that well

Female hybridus show a different frons pattern, with the pale area stretching back on each side of the ocellar triangle to some extent.
